Are You Considering an Abortion?
Abortion is a major decision. It is important to know about abortion risks and procedures. At Prestonwood Pregnancy Center, we encourage you to learn about all of your options, including abortion. Although we don’t perform or refer for abortions, we will help you understand what you can expect from the abortion procedure. Gather your questions and make an appointment today to meet with one of our advocates before scheduling an abortion.
Having answers to these questions will help you determine what you should do.
Am I really pregnant?
Even if you have pregnancy symptoms or have taken a home test, you should confirm your pregnancy with a medical quality pregnancy test and an ultrasound. A pregnancy may be detected as early as seven to 10 days after conception.
Be aware that about 10-20% of known pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. Actual rates may be higher as many women miscarry before knowing they are pregnant.
How far along am I?
Having an ultrasound is an important piece in making an informed decision.
Abortion procedures and their associated costs are determined based upon how far along you are in the pregnancy. Having this information will help you better understand what type of abortion procedure you may be eligible to receive along with their associated costs.
A limited medical ultrasound at Prestonwood Pregnancy Center will confirm your pregnancy; including whether the pregnancy is viable at the time of the scan (by confirming a heartbeat) and estimating the gestational age (how many weeks pregnant you are).
What are the different abortion procedures and risks?
There are different abortion procedures for different stages of pregnancy and each of these have their own risks. Please contact us to learn more about the procedures and the risks of each.
At Prestonwood Pregnancy Center, we provide lab quality pregnancy tests and sonograms by medically-trained professionals at no charge to our clients. With pregnancy confirmation and an understanding of where you are in your pregnancy, you will be prepared to make an informed decision.Call Us at (972) 386-4015 Locations Book an Appointment
